The Birth Journey

A Holistic Childbirth Preparation Experience




I am currently working as a holistic childbirth educator,  birth ceremonialist, and hypnotherapist.  I began my passionate path into childbirth in the early 1970's.  I am a LVN with a background in Ob/Gyn nursing and direct entry midwifery training and apprenticeship.  I was a doula with Birth Doulas of Marin for 18 years.  Since 1990 I have offered my childbirth services in Marin County, California.  Besides teaching holistic childbirth preparation, newborn care, and breastfeeding classes, I also offer pregnant mother's circles called Waxing Moon Mamas.  I facilitate Blessing Way & Welcoming ceremonies,  offer belly casting, birth art sessions, private consultations, and postpartum services.  I am a Certified Hypnotherapist offering support in all childbirth related issues.  Of all the things I have done in my life, I am most proud of being the mother of my happy, healthy, creative and delightful daughter.
